This is something I have to reflect upon.
I'm under the impression that commercial exploitation destroys anything good that comes from hacking.
At times, I'd like a license stricter then AGPL for my code, just to protect it from "the market".
And I refuse to accept that being commercial is the only way to be useful to people. That's the ethics of Capitalism, and I don't like it.
In theory they are.
Sadly, sometimes in Italy, they are used to private workers from their rights.
However, my long term dream is to create an hacker cooperative where each developer has the same hour wage which is a fraction of the total income.
This way people would have no reason to compete inside the organization and all to gain from improving the productivity.
The issues are: how to decide rapidly and how to keep all serious at work...
social.coop is a cooperatively-run corner of the Fediverse. The instance is democratically governed by its members, who generally share an interest in the co-op model, but topics of discussion range widely.
Our instance is supported by sliding scale contributions of $1-10/mo made via Open Collective. You must have an active Open Collective account to apply for membership; you may set one up here
